Abstract

Measuring the exercise-induced flow changes in the arteries of the body isa major challenge, The use of quantitative MR flow measurements for this purpose is hampered by movement artifacts and ECG triggering problems, To quantify exercise-induced flow changes in the abdominal aorta, we applied a fast hybrid phase contrast sequence with K-space segmentation and echo planar imaging readouts during a 12 heart beat, single breathhold post exercise scanning window after ergometer exercise in nine volunteers, Central k-space was acquired first. The changes in heart rate throughout the scanning window were quantified. The mean decrease in heart rate after six heart beats post exercise was less than 4% and less than 14% after 11 heart beats indicating that the exercise state was very well represented during the acquisition of central k-space, Abdominal aortic flow increased from 1.4 +/- 0.3 l/min at rest to 7.9 +/- 1.1 l/min at 131 watt, Retrograde flow reached a maximum value of 1.2 l/min at rest, and lasted 140 ms on average, Only for oneout of the nine volunteers was there any retrograde flow present during exercise (at 33 watt and 65 watt exercise). It was concluded that retrograde flow patterns in the abdominal aorta associated with oscillating wall shearstresses and development of atherosclerosis disappeared with increasing levels of exercise, The feasibility of using fast quantitative phase contrastmeasurements during a post exercise scanning window to represent controlled exercise levels was demonstrated, (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Inc.
